    home built sponsons

    here are a couple of pics of my home built ...well my shop built ...opas block offs... and my now modified home built sponsons.... delrin works with basic wood working tools.. the hardest part was finding the position of the studs on the ski... tools required were,,, a router,, drill ,,tap,,, and table saw sander,,,possibly a jig saw ..i was worried about ripping the sides off just being taped into the delrin...so i used lots of screws 14/20 stainless button heads... the 1 main block is mounted to the ski then drilled and tapped for the "?fins"?.the uppers holes have 2 sets of holes in the main block... the lowers 1 set ...in the main... 2 in the fin..needed more room ...i havent tested them yet we will find out tomarrow

    I think they look neat. They may scrub a little speed though, being set back that far.
